A web of programs run by the federal and state governments provide a safety net for the poor, including people who are elderly, disabled or are raising young children and have low incomes or are temporarily unemployed. These programs, often referred to collectively as welfare, include TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), WIC (Women, Infants and Children), SSI (Supplemental Security Income), and EITC (Earned-Income Tax Credit), among others. Many date back to the “War on Poverty” declared by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964. About 11 percent of the federal budget is spent on social safety net programs.
